  1. My Microsoft Security Essentials has detected 2-3 different types of Trojans while Malwarebytes was running a threat scan, and the MSE showed the Trojan coming from Malwarebytes. And Malwarebytes hasn't detected anything. Is this just a false positive? Because I wasn't having these issues a few weeks ago, and my computer has been slower.
  2. https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1123 Following up on the post at the head of this forum about the exclusions recommended to be added to other security software running alongside Malwarebytes 3, I've done this for some time with the antivirus software I've used (currently content with MSE) and also included C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes and C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes folders for good measure. However, I'd just like to make absolutely sure that I'm doing this correctly by adding these to the "Excluded files and locations" tab in MSE and shouldn't have anything added under the "Excluded file types" and "Excluded processes" tabs.
  3. I tried installing 3.06 on several windows 7 computers, and they all had problems with MSE. I saw it was a known issues with 3.05, but not 3.06. Was there a fix I missed or exclusion list we are supposed to enter?
  4. Given that this is a known issue: "Microsoft Security Essentials running alongside Malwarebytes 3.0 might cause system lockdowns under Windows 7 due to a buggy Microsoft update.", should I just uninstall MSE? But then how do I get Windows 7 to recognize Malwarebytes 3.0.5 Premium (installed over a previous 2.2.x lifetime Pro license) as an anti-virus replacement so that it doesn't bug me about it? BTW, something seems to have changed even before I upgraded to 3.0.x because for about the last month or so I'm getting hangs of Windows that last for minutes on end. Was it due to the "buggy Microsoft update" of the MSE program itself (there seems to have been one in late November). Don't know if this is the result of the problem with MSE I did a full threat scan with MWB 3.0.5 which came up clean, but during the scan would cause Windows 7 x64 to become pretty much completely unresponsive. Also it would seem to get stuck on a particular file for a couple of minutes, but per Task Manager it wouldn't be using any CPU at all. Finally, at the end, the MWB icon in the task bar would not go away, even after dismissing the window to the system tray. Short of an uninstall of MSE, will telling it to ignore Malwarebytes processes resolve the freezing problems?
  5. Are there any issues running the anti-exploit product with Windows 7 Microsoft Security Essentials?
  6. i want to just scan my computer with mbam free, i have mse running all the time with real time protection, if i install mbam free while i have mse running, will it cause problems? thanks in advance
  7. Yesterday I was only partially surprised, when during a Windows Update check, my system was offered MS Security Essentials (MSE). Of course I did not respond and I've chosen to hide this download offer. Since my system has received this, I wonder if all Windows Update queries will be met with this. What's concerning is the systems of others might be offered this and unknowing users may be doubling up on on-access antivirus scanners and the difficulties that competing scanners may bring to their systems. In my own case, I already use Avira's Free Antivirus (now v14.0.3.338) since the original installation of this W7 Pro x64 SP1 desktop.
  8. I just wanted to let you guys know that "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit\is-OI68V.tmp" is causing a false positive MSE as well..
  9. Hi all, I'm having an issue with MBAM causing explorer to crash on a Win7 64 bit machine. I have a Synology NAS on my home network and have several folders on there mapped as drives in Windows. I have done every hardware and software troubleshooting thing I can think of and it appears to come down to the paid version of MBAM (it used to work fine when I was using just the free version). Here's what happens. Computer boots up fine, I can even explore the folders on the NAS. At some point, Explorer hangs and I am forced to close it using Task Manager. I then have to use Task Manager to start a new instance of Explorer and if I try and go back to exploring the NAS, it happens again. During this whole process, my audio player (Media Monkey) is able to access everything on the NAS even while explorer is locked up. I can also view the NAS using my web browser. At first I was sure it was Microsoft Security Essentials causing this, but I uninstalled it and tried different anti-virus solutions and they all had the same effect. The only thing that helped was uninstalling MBAM. Since I did that, the machine works fine. I have another computer with Win7 32 bit and I tried the full version of MBAM along with MSE and I have no issues at all connecting to the NAS with that computer. Any ideas? Any further information I can provide to help solve this? I'm kind of bummed that I paid for MBAM and it ends up hosing my computer. Thanks.
  10. Windows 7 Using Chrome, IE and Firefox my computer is behaving erratically. It either redirects to ad sites or a blank page. I noticed MSE was not in the tray and have been unable to load/run it except in safe mode. MSE, MBAM and spybot all find no issues. Please help.

  11. Hardware: HP Pavilion dv5 Toshiba 500 GB External Drive Software: Windows 7 Home Premium OS Microsoft Security Essentials Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro I’ll try to make this as short as possible. About 3 weeks ago I had to reformat my computer because of a virus. Was running Symantec Endpoint Protection along with MSE (know not to do that now of course) and Spybot Search and Destroy. Symantec picked up the adware virus, but it wasn’t until trying Malwarebytes free (after scanning with Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, Microsoft Security Scanner, and Trend Micro House Call) that I found out I had 7 trojan proxies along with the adware. I clicked delete to delete them all, was then sent to start up repair, and after backing up data I reformatted the hard drive. Did the various updates for MSE, MB (now Pro), and Windows after reinstallation, and everything seemed to run ok. MB did pick up two Trojan.Zbot viruses (currently in quarantine). Within that time I put the files from my external drive back onto the computer (scanned them with both AV and nothing came up). After about a week or so though, the computer started running much slower, and MSE kept turning off (did that a lot before when I had the viruses). Ran scans with both MB and MSE but nothing was picked up. Sometimes it works fine after a while of being on, but even as I typed this my power settings were changed from HP recommended to high performance without me doing so, and I had to type this in Microsoft Word because Internet Explorer 9 couldn’t recover the forums page. I update MSE and MB daily. I also followed the steps for compatibility issues with MSE and MB. So is there an answer as to why my computer is running slow and glitchy? I hope it’s not another virus. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

  13. Several weeks ago my computer with the Windows 7 Professional operating system began to freeze regularly. I had Malwarebytes Antimalware (PRO) and Microsoft Security Essentials installed with the MBAM Pro real time scanning enabled. While attempting to resolve the freezing issue, I uninstalled MSE and installed Avast!. My computer continued to freeze regularly. With both MSE and Avast, I followed the MBAM forum instructions to ignore the respecitive softwares but that didn't stop the freezing. After many frustrating weeks I turned off the MBAM Pro real time protection module. That was about two weeks ago. Since then, I haven't had a single issue with my computer freezing up. I'm happy my computer is no longer freezing up, but I'm not happy that I can't take advantage of the protection module with MBAM Pro. Are there additional exclusions that I need to set for MBAM Pro that the non-Pro version doesn't require? Do you have any other suggestions on making my MBAM Pro real time protection work successfully with Avast? Thanks.
